This page hosts individual segments of the ten ways to relieve stress in 1 minute, as described in episode 24 “How to Survive the Second Half of the School Year.” The full episode, blog post, transcript, and show notes are available here.

Use this page if you want to listen to just one activity at a time when you feel stressed. However, they are also easily accessible here in case you want to use them individually with your special ed staff or even students. I hope this is a tool you can use during the uncertain time we are living in, and in the future as well.
